SEX AFTER 40

(WARNING  SIGNS)

You are old and fragile
Claiming to be a lion when in bed
In some way, you remind me of the walking dead
Your bones make sound when walking across the room
Rattling, as if they know your end is near
Confusing rigor mortis where muscle mass once stood

You say you have stamina that has no end
Until now, your back hurts when you move
Losing count of every inch that got away!!!
With your moods constantly changing,
I prefer not to mention the belly fat around your waist

Then you have romantic days, you plea to love
You chase down a Viagra pill with red fuzz
Seemingly, without adding depression to your day
Pill's are the only object expanding when swallowed
40 some, and you think you can romp around the room
I yawn, yet you are the one tired, next to doom

Dusty and old you boxer shorts
Can't remember the last time you stayed up late
Kicking the bucket every time I talk about S E X
Your hairline aged with time, bold and bald 
I forgot which one you recalled this morning
Perhaps these are signs of low testosterone 
Merely in the meantime............... R.I.P. WILL YA!!!

Old is gold in heart. Old lion lives with old lioness all knows. No one can defeat the long term heart because of treasure of love even after becoming bald and belly fat. You have done this poem so fantastically that every 40 years man will fear to know about his image. It's sure a warning signs. Thanks for bringing lot of ha ha ha... my dear best friend. A great 7.

Linda you capture reality so very accurately. Sometimes the body gets weak and a lion becomes imprisoned and helpless! Thanks for sharing.

Very amusing poem, PD. And I suppose it does pertain to a lot of men/women. But I guess I'm from good genetic stock. I'm from a big family as well. Fourteen, so my parents had no problemo w/sex after 40. I'm an old lion ticking near 60. But my passions have never aged. I'm just blessed that way. So your poem was like totally foreign to me. Sorry for you guy to whom it was truthfully directed to. Love as always to you, PD.

Heyyyyy!! It can't be so bad after 40. Like Rita said, more like after 80......more like after 60. You nicely captured a real life problem in beautiful lines.

I don't know, sex after 40 has not been so bad. Just a matter of pacing oneself. Great piece though.
